Today being Friday the 13th, I thought it would be a good day to start a page on the Magical Uses of Essential and Fragrance Oils. I just started reading a new book titled, ‘Llewellyn’s Complete Formulary of Magical Oils’ by Celeste Rayne Heldstab.
1 Book of Magical Oils
I’m so excited about what this book has been teaching me, that I want to share with you.
I will also be incorporating my “good old standby”, ‘Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs’ by Scott Cunningham.
1 Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs
My Blog gets several hits a day from people searching for; What Oil Brings Love? Which Oils are good for Drawing Money? What is a Good Luck Oil?
This is the one I want to focus on today; What is a Good Luck Oil?
Before starting, I want to remind you, When working with Magic, one may use fragrance oils, the herb itself, and/or essential oils.
Now, let’s begin with Magical Intent.

MAGICAL INTENT

Magical Intent is passion – manifest. When working with magic, the words and the intent that you have when you create an oil, has their own power!
FYI – This is also true when making a healing blend.
The words you do not say, also have power. So, be sure you include all the exact things you want your oil to manifest, as well as, what you don’t want it to manifest.
Think on this for a moment and make sure you understand completely. If not, read the book, contact me at mauldinfamily1@yahoo.com or look it up on the internet.

Following is a list of Essential Oils, Fragrance Oils, and/or Herbs and their intent to assist you.

Allspice, Aloe, Bamboo, Banyan, Be-Still, Bluebell, Cabbage, Calamus, China Berry, Cinchona, Cotton, Daffodil, Devil’s Bit, Fern, Grains of Paradise, Hazel, Heather, Holly, Houseleek, Huckleberry, Irish Moss, Job’s Tears, Linden, Lucky Hand, Male Fern, Moss, Nutmeg, Oak, Orange, Persimmon, Pineapple, Pomegranate, Poppy, Purslane, Rose, Snakeroot, Star Anise, Straw, Strawberry, Sumbul, Vetiver, Violet, Wood Rose

Look back and re-read ‘Magical Intent’. Today, we are going to be discussing Essential Oils that Attract Money. This covers a wide range of intentions; Are you looking for money to just appear in your bank account or wallet? (I don’t think you are going to see that happen, but you can try.) Are you really needing a job to make more money? (Much More Reasonable.) Are you really looking for success? A Promotion at work that will guarantee you a raise? Are you looking to do a little gambling at the casino? If so, you might wish to include Luck and Success to your blend.
Think about it long and hard, so that you will know exactly what it is you want. When you start making your blend, pour your full intent into the oil.

Following is a list of Essential Oils, Fragrance Oils, and/or Herbs and their intent to assist you.

MONEY

Almond, Bayberry, Bergamot, Honeysuckle, Mint, Patchouli, Pine, Vervain

Look up the properties of the above listed Essential Oils, Fragrance Oils, and/or Herbs. Choose three that match your intent the closest. That is the three you need to work with. Remember, Carrier Oils have magical properties too.

Learning to make your own Essential Oil Blends is easy. You learn by doing, practicing, and reading. The information is here to assist you. You decide what you want, then make a blend with will and intent.
You can make blends by the hour, day, phase, or sign of the Moon. You can make them as ritualistic or as simple as you want. There are no special rules.
Write down all your work, so that you will be able to tell if a blend worked for you or not. Practice, practice, practice!
When working with the Moon, a simple rule of thumb is to use the New Moon to begin projects, attract money, help relationships, and aid in health problems. Use the Full Moon to bring energy to projects already started.
With the Full Moon upon us, we will start there. Following are some links that will tell you more about Moon energy:

Libra 11°56

The harmonious nature of this Libra New Moon invites investigation into all that will bring everyone and everything closer together. This might be easily understood if we look at blogging as an example; we are not alone. What comes from my heart will quickly be yours to see. This is the nature of this current Libra New Moon and its primary purpose is for us to find balance within our own hearts!
Libra is symbolized as the ”scale” in astrology and is represented in some way in all religions. Libra seeks to renew compatible and friendly relationships between all religions, all people, and all matters and that concern the heart. There is an increasing need in the world to eliminate the dualistic nature of present day humanity and replace it with the singular strength of one heart. New Moon’s are powerful times to focus on our life and what changes we may want to see in it. Make a list. This Libra New Moon is a powerful time to meditate on world peace for all life forms.

Magical Oils and Colors

New moon, new ideas and new opportunity will be coming along by the end of the week to give us the idea that we will see our success soon. Be ready with the pen and paper to record any new, bright and wild thoughts as they will be the foundation on which we build our next set of action steps.
We will have to do the work if we want to gain the reward. We will not be able to trick ourselves or others into thinking things are “A okay” and do not need changing. Changes are happening for all of us in different intensities.

Fragrance Oils vs Essential Oils

Many companies today offer synthetic oils at a fraction of the cost of essential oils (essential oils are the ones actually extracted from a plant). However, for magical purposes it’s best to use authentic, essential oils –these contain the magical properties of the plant, which synthetic oils do not have.
Using Essential Oils will give a boost to your work, but when working with Synthetic Fragrance Oils you can increase your intent to boost your work. Another idea is to have a piece of the plant itself available.
While many commercial vendors would have you believe that there’s some Super Secret Magical Method for blending oils, it’s actually pretty simple. First, determine your intent — whether you are creating a money oil to bring you prosperity, a love oil to boost your romantic encounters, or a ritual oil to use in ceremony.
Once you’ve determined your intent, assemble the essential oils called for in the recipes. In a clean container, add 1/8 Cup of your base oil — this should be one of the following:
•Safflower
•Grapeseed
•Jojoba
•Sunflower
•Almond
Read more about Carrier Oils at: https://mauldinfamily1.wordpress.com/aromatherapy-information-about/magical-properties-of-carrier-oils/
Use an eyedropper to add the essential oils in the recipes. Be sure to follow the recommended proportions.
To mix, don’t stir… swirl. Swish the essential oils into the base oil by swirling in a clockwise direction.
Make sure you store your oil blends in a place away from heat and moisture. Keep them in dark-colored glass bottles, and be sure to label them for use. Write the date on the label, and use within six months.
There are a number of ways you can use your oils in a ritual setting. They are often rubbed on candles for use in spellwork – this blends the powerful energies of the oil with the magical symbolism of the candle’s color and the energy of the flame itself. (See Saturday’s Colors Above.)
Sometimes, oils are used to anoint the body. Oils applied to the body bring the wearer the energies of the oil — an Energy Oil will give you a much-needed boost, a Courage Oil will give you strength in the face of adversity.
Finally, crystals, amulets, talismans and other charms may be anointed with the magical oil of your choice. This is a great way to turn a simple mundane item into an item of magical power and energy.
